West Midlands - Mental Health Support for Young People (Invitation to Tender)

Groundwork UK is seeking partners to provide specialist support to young people participating in Progress: Building Better Opportunities in Coventry and Warwickshire. Building Better Opportunities (BBO) Progress is co-financed by Big Lottery Fund (BLF) and European Social Fund (ESF).

Mental Health Support 
Groundwork UK is looking for a Specialist Partner to help support the high proportion of young people engaging with Progress who are demonstrating mild to moderate mental health concerns. These conditions are both diagnosed and undiagnosed, and can act as a barrier to the young person progressing into education, employment, or training. The specialist service should be designed to address local need in Coventry and/ or Warwickshire, offering a rapid, responsive service to Progress participants, and that helps the programme dovetail effectively with other, existing mental health services.

Progress will support at least 840 young people aged 15-24 years old to overcome the personal barriers and challenges preventing them from engaging positively in learning or work, and will provide a clear pathway for young people to increase their skills and take the first steps on their future career path through training or employment

Please see attached the invitations to tender below. Queries relating to the specification should be addressed to, marked "BBO Partnership Tender" in the subject line, by no later than midday, Wednesday 3rd May 2017.
